Haskell is a Continent on the planet Titan. as with the rest of Titan, the Gods arrived and created their world out of very little. they started all civilization on what is now known to the people living there as the God’s Island. Each deity started by adding a small number of their preferred race to the island, and teaching their peoples that though they are different, they are all blessed beings and should thrive together making the lands they were given a great home for all of them. After a few decades of working with their peoples and teaching them to be self sufficient, the Gods left their lands and the people to live and work together in peace. A short while later, the faerie king Oberon, stepped through the mists and entered Titan for the first time, and he took the spiritual people, the Sinn Fein, that were part of his domain in the mortal realm and turned them into mortal beings with an insatiable curiousity, creating the Wee Folk.
The Wee folk were welcomed on the island by the other races, and were given a voice in the council that governed them, and all was at peace for the next hundred years. Over the next hundred years, their culture fourished and they all raised children, furthering their races, until eventually there grew a discord between the older and younger generations of each race. the younger generations were tired of living in peace as equals with everyone, they thought that they had better ideas on how to run the tribe, and set out in groups of agreeing philosophies to find new lands to the south.
Thus the four Vikeish Tribes were born.
Distrought at the abandonment by their children, and at the feelings of failure left behind, the elders of the original tribe also left their home, no longer feeling worthy of the gifts bestowed by the gods there, and headed north to establish the tribe again, and be sure it was done right this time. When they arrived in the new lands they named them Ponos, and set the council back in place with a just but firm society so as to never feel the pain of loss again. However, some of the council thought that this was the wrong approach and split of once again, heading west this time. When this off branch of the council arrived in the place they deemed would be their new home, they named it Deimos, and vowed that those of them in power would never again know the panic that set in when first their children left the tribe, and instead, they would use that force to control their people and those who wouldn’t be controlled be damned, they could leave, or be made an example of (preferably the latter).
